Balltec Delivers Mooring Equipment for Bluewater ‘Aoka Mizu’ FPSO

Balltec has completed the manufacture, testing and delivery of twelve MoorLOK subsea mooring connectors on behalf of Bluewater Energy Services.

The connectors will be used to moor Bluewater’s Aoka Mizu FPSO at Hurricane Energy’s Great Lancaster Area field in the North Sea.

Bluewater’s engineering / expediting team selected Balltec’s MoorLOK connector based on weight, size and track record.

Balltec assisted Bluewater during the detailed design of the offshore installation aids and testing.

This system allows installation and utilisation of the MoorLOK in any orientation and makes it the ideal solution for Bluewater’s project where the connectors will be installed in the inverted position to connect the mooring lines to the dis-connectable turret buoy of the FPSO.

As part of the same project, Balltec has also provided three ROV Interface Panels which are to be installed on the Aoka Mizu’s dis-connectable buoy for ballasting / de-ballasting. The order was placed with Balltec based on Bluewater’s positive experience with the MoorLOK connectors.

Assembly of the ROV Interface Panels on to the buoy is currently on-going with installation of the FPSO and MoorLOK connectors scheduled to take place during the summer of 2018.
